Our 10U Kid Pitch League is a league for 9 and 10 year olds (muse be 10yrs old on May 1, 2018). The focus of the league is to introduce young players to the true game of baseball. This league introduces players to the art of pitching and further expands upon fundamentals and game knowledge.

Practice times are determined by your Coach, not by the league.
Pony Express Baseball follows USSSA rules...however, we do have a "Non-Competitive" version for our teams that are just starting out and not competing in travel tournament ball. These rules are below...
By registering as a Coach, this does not mean you will be guaranteed a team. PEB will screen all coaching applications / background checks and the Board of Directors and League Directors will select the coaches that best fit the position.
To be considered for a Coach position, you will need to complete the Coaches Application and the online Background Check on the PEB website (if you coached in the 2017 Spring session and had the background check completed, you do not need to do another for the spring):
* Coaches Applications are available online
Application & Background check must be submitted no later than the close of registration of the applicable season.
The background check will cost you $12 (non-refundable and the league will not reimburse you)
Once you have completed the background check, the system will notify PEB by email of the results.
Your Assistant Coaches/Dugout Coaches (or any Adult that will be on the field/dugout with the players) will be required to complete the background check as well at their expense.
